I hate the fucking news.

Many of you may remember that, a few years ago, a friendly acquaintance of mine was murdered. I'd like to say that it was the first time that a friend of mine was murdered, but it wasn't. It wasn't even the second time that someone I knew was murdered.

At any rate, I'm sitting here watching the news, and what should I see, but the news that the trial is apparently underway. Feh. It's weird to hear the people who killed Frank referred to as "men." I'm pretty sure that most of them are still teenagers, even now, two years later.

I hate hearing about friends on the news. I hated it when I found out about Bob's death on the news. Hell, I even hated hearing about Kip on the news. It's always a full-frontal assault, watching TV and hearing something horrible about someone that I know personally.

I wonder whatever happened with the woman who killed Bob? I guess the trial of a woman who ran down a man on a bicycle doesn't merit the same air time as the trial of a group of boys who shot someone.

It's all just horrible.
